Mission Statement:


Vivid's mission is to promote fine arts and entertainment events and to showcase the talent and background of local artists and entertainers to the overarching communities of Missouri Southern State University and Joplin, Missouri. The magazine is published each fall and spring semester and distributed on campus and in the Joplin area. Vivid is written, designed and produced by students and faculty in the Missouri Southern Communication Department. The views expressed do not represent the student body, faculty, staff, administration or Missouri Southern State University. While uniquely produced within a learning environment, Vivid expects its members to exhibit the highest level of excellence and professionalism in their work and representation of the magazine.
